This is happening WAY too fast. My babies were off to part one of their school orientation today.
I mean, looking at them this morning I was sure they were still like this.
But they're not. They're like this.
|It's hard to smile for mummy when the sun is in your eyes!|
|Happy little vegemites - Big sister Eloise shows off!|
Then it was off to spend some time with the other kindergarten class in the class room, it was hitting me like tons of bricks. This is it. As they looked up the teacher with almost hero-worship I realised how ready they are to leave me, start school, be school kids. I found myself gulping and trying hard to breathe.
|Ready? Yeah maybe..|
We had a quick Italian lesson too where we saw the fabulous songs they learn and for me, this was a particular highlight - having been a long time scholar of the Italian language.
Then lastly it was up to the library for story time with their buddies. Buddies are in year 5 now but will be in Year 6 when they start and will be their 'go-to' person in the playground.
The library teacher read a few stories, the one that was a stand out was 'The Wrong Book' by Nick Bland. It was fun, comical and really engaging (as was the library teacher) I'm off to search the 'net to buy it now.
Laura's favourite part was library, Olivia's favourite part was using the smartboard in the classroom. Big orientation next month where I leave them there. For like a few hours. Whoah.
Mental note: Put ambulance in speed dial of mobile phone, for first day of school. Whaaaaah!
(Ps. the top image is the ACTUAL bus I used to catch to school. Same number and everything... showing my age...)
